Recalling the Iron Age

Station art and design complement the late 19th century architecture of the nearby historic business district, with its rich, ornamental brickwork and extensive use of ironwork detailing.

Downtown Plano Station Iron Horse DetailStation columns include brick and carved stone bands, while the iron fencing features a repeated, gracefully scrolled initial "P," signifying Plano. Pavement patterns and ornamental railing continue the historic motif.

Artist Tom Askman's sculpture, Iron Horse, is a stylized, life-sized horse, complete with two whimsical horseflies. Its legs include details similar to the drive wheel assemblies of a steam locomotive, also known in yesteryear as the Iron Horse.

Design Artist: Lyle Novinski
